The assay provides a proluminescent caspase-3/7 DEVD-aminoluciferin substrate and a proprietary thermostable luciferase in a reagent optimized for caspase-3/7 activity, luciferase activity and cell lysis. Adding the single Caspase-Glo® 3/7 Reagent in an "add-mix-measure" format results in cell lysis, followed by caspase cleavage of the substrate. This liberates free aminoluciferin, which is consumed by the luciferase, generating a "glow-type" luminescent signal that is proportional to caspase-3/7 activity.
The stabilized luciferase and proprietary buffer system improve assay performance across a wide range of assay conditions, and the assay is less likely to be affected by compound interference unlike fluorescent- or colorimetric-based assays. The Caspase-Glo® 3/7 Assay is designed for use with multiwell plate formats using either purified enzyme or cells in culture and can be multiplexed with other cell-based assays. It also delivers excellent Z'-factor values in cell and purified enzyme models.
Jurkat cells were treated with anti-Fas mAb for 4.5 hours to induce apoptosis or were left untreated. Caspase-Glo® 3/7 Reagent was added directly to the cells in 96-well plates and incubated for 1 hour before recording luminescence. Each point represents the average of 4 wells. The "no cell" blank control value has been subtracted from each.
Using 100μl of Caspase-Glo® Reagent per assay in a 96-well format, Cat.# G8090 provides sufficient reagents to perform 25 assays; Cat.# G8091, 100 assays; Cat.# G8092 and G8093, 1,000 assays. Using 25μl of Caspase-Glo® Reagent per assay in a 384-well format, Cat.# G8090 provides sufficient reagents to perform 100 assays; Cat.# G8091, 400 assays; Cat.# G8092 and G8093, 4,000 assays.
